Hi everyone o/ I'm having a little issue with Flatpak, it says it's out of space ¿ocasionally?
Apparently I can open 1 flatpak app per login session. If I try to run bottles, fine, it runs, but then if I try to run Dust3D:

flatpak run org.dust3d.dust3d
error: Failed to write file ?/run/user/1001/.flatpak/3157103008/info.YS9VR1?: write() failed: No space left on device

And so it's the opposite, it's not an app issue, it's a flatpak one. Doesn't seem to matter if the 1st app is open or not, I opened one app, the second won't run, regardless.

I tried searching online, I found a thread on fedora about this, but it was a BIOS issue IG, I didn't fully understand xD

I also found this on reddit

But then again, I have no clue about what

tmpfs 1048576 1048504 72 100% /home/mthw/.cache

even means, let alone do something about it.

So I'm here for any insights on the stuff, if anyone faced it before or anything, I'll be amazed to hear your thoughts.

Thanks in advance : 3

if you'll do the research flatpak and snaps are not supported on garuda :slightly_smiling_face:


Check available RAM before launching an application.


Looks like you're out of space in this temporary location.

That's showing the amount of used space in that user's .cache directory. This is not a default setup in Garuda, so it's unlikely to be helpful.

However, there was something else in the linked page that you missed, which was:

This is worth doing to check the available disk space across all areas of your system.


Well, the post is under unsupported stuff, so... no one is being held accountable on that matter xD
There's still a few apps that I can only get through flatpak tho

Yeah, I did, there's way more than enough ram on any case :confused:

Do you know how to clean this then?

WOW why is my "tmpfs" at 100%? How can I make it less used? xD Or is that a noobie question and it should be at 100? o.o



Open that location in a file manager and see what's in there.


Yeah, there's like 25 items, most of them folders of software stuff, like firedragon, pipewire, garuda maintenance, pulse, systemd... On the .flatpak there's like 800 bytes and the whole '1001' folder is ~350mb, but then again it tells me nothing about the issue.
Inside my .flatpak the apps have locked files like 'app', 'bus', 'info', etc, also unhelpful

My best guess would be to wipe the '1001' folder clean, but that seems far from being a wise move xD

~btw it's not like I don't want to do research, it's more like, I do the research and understand basic concepts, but far from knowing what to do. If anyone have a helpful noobie-friendly link I couldn't find, feel free to throw it at me.

This tmpfs is around 350MB total size, so it is full.

Have you made any changes to your system configuration since installing?

You can use du to get a readout of disk usage. Running it as du -h -d1 may be useful.

Apart from installing flatpak as in "paru -Su flatpak"... no, nothing, I don't even know how to modify stuff

Alright, how should I clean it up?

Firstly, it seems small.

Secondly, the du command I mentioned was intended to be run in that directory to identify where the space was being used.

Alright, seems to me like a browser problem. I tried uninstalling Vivaldi rn and then rebooting and well, it still shows up O.O

Also, should I look on how to increase the tmpfs then? Something like this (How to resize tmpfs in Linux. How to adjust available space in tmpfs… | by George Shuklin | OpsOps | Medium)?

This sounds like a Snap thing - are you using Snaps?

Or, is this profile-sync-daemon... ? :thinking:

Ahahahshshs oh no, it's my user name, Jujuba is a nickname of mine so :V my user is "juju"

It looks like your browser profiles are being held in this tmpfs area - I don't know what you have installed that is doing this, but it looks similar to profile-sync-daemon.


Yeah, I don't know. Perhaps it's a vivaldi thing or smth, it was pretty buggy these last few months to tell you the truth.

But anyways, I uninstalled vivaldi and it seems to have de-clogged my flatpak stuff even tho it still shows up on the du command. I'll also increase the tmpfs size to something sensible like 1gb because there are some greedy monster softwares out there and call it a day.
I think I bothered you enough for a day, Jonathon, thank you so much for keeping up with me on the issue today : 3

If you want to mark your tip about the du stuff and the resizing as a solution, feel free to do it.
[unless you want to keep digging ofc, we could look after what the profiles are doing]
